Sometimes you just have to look a little closer. Most of my portfolio consists of landscapes, but I'm always on the lookout for interesting patterns and textures on a smaller scale. I came across these frosted leaves while hiking in the Bavarian Alps late last Fall.
This morning reworked the full color version of this frame into several editions. In this monochrome conversion I applied a little dodge and burn to intensify the highlights and shadows, accentuating the textures and patterns in the leaves.
